Good Quote on the Value of an Agent for Small Businesses

Janet Trautwein, CEO of the National Association of Health Underwriters, made the following statement:

“By going through an agent, small business owners have the advantage of the experience and advocacy of a professionally licensed health insurance advisor. Not only are agents able to help small business owners find a plan that fits the healthcare needs of their employees and the financial needs of their business, but agents also offer a litany of consumer protections to their clients. Agents are required to complete continuing education courses through their state department of insurance in order to keep their license, and they go through additional certification training to be able to sell exchange policies. Long after a policy is sold, agents continue to administer plans by working directly with carriers to resolve any billing and coverage issues that might arise. They also have professional liability insurance, have been proven to decrease insurance fraud, and improve claims processing efficiency and coverage stability.”
